1931 workplace drama still fresh

Bravo to the always-intrepid Mint Theater Company (@MintTheaterCo) for breathing new life into workplace drama circa 1931, George Kelly's "Philip Goes Forth." Timeless conflicts well-rendered: business vs. art, suburb vs. city, son vs. father. Interesting to reflect that Kelly won the Pulitzer Prize for playwriting in 1925 (for "Craig's Wife"), but he's best remembered today as the uncle of actress Grace Kelly, if he's remembered at all.
